About the Book
Frank Lloyd Wright’s Wisconsin: How America’s Most Famous Architect Found Inspiration in His Home State, published this year, is part travel guide, part fireside chat with stewards of his designs—all in Wisconsin. Wright was born in Richland Center and many examples of his designs, including churches, apartment complexes, homes, corporate headquarters, and a conference center are all in Wisconsin. The book also details three of his projects that have since been demolished: the Delavan Lake Yacht Club, the Geneva Hotel in Lake Geneva and Arthur R. Munkwitz Apartments in Milwaukee. The book’s author, Kristine Hansen, is a journalist covering food/drink, art/design and travel.
